Mrs. Lori Hilker
Welcome back to school! I hope you and your
families had a blessed and happy summer during which
you created wonderful memories. It was great to see so
many of you at the open house. You have grown so much!
It’s hard to believe, but this will be my 11th year of teaching
music at St. Patrick School.
My husband, Kent, and I had a good summer. We
got to spend time with our kids and grandchildren, got to
see lots of extended family, and did some renovations at
our house. We definitely kept busy!
Here are a few things I’d like to share with you.
My husband, Kent, and I are long-time members of
McCook and St. Patrick Parish. We enjoy spending time
with family, traveling, and working on our rental houses. I
received my teaching degree from the University of Nebraska
at Kearney in 1999 and my master’s degree in
2010. Mr. Hilker has worked at the Parker plant for 41
We have two married daughters (Amanda Dame
and Keri Galarneau) and one son (Shane). Their families
all live in McCook and we are grateful for that because it
means we get to see them and our seven grandchildren
